my O/H told me my work would never win a competion because it was not 'funky' or 'far out there enough'
so i decided to create a bangle that was sensclessly time consuming to produce ie: expensive and in keeping with all designer creations: utterly impractical.



this is one BIG bangle Grin it measures just over 14cm in diameter. i had planned to sculpt one then create a push mould to make the rabbits as i felt creating each rabbit from one lump of polymer clay would make each the protrusions  (especially the ears) less likely to break if knocked but the mould didnt work well, i had great difficulty aligning the mould correctly and in the end i just used the mould to ensure they were all roughly the same size and sculpted the details of each by hand.
i made the bangle first and inserted pins into the base of each rabbit before baking. i then drilled holes into the bangle baking filling with clay and baked again to hold each rabbit securely onto the bangle



bunnies before baking:


i dont think it going to win competitions but i love it and its surprisingly comfy to wear (as long as you dont try to change your top, attempt any sort of manual labour or want to comfortably hold hands with your partner Tongue)
as always comments or advice is more than welcome Smiley

This is wonderful! I love the color-combination, but most of all the thought of trying to wear it with grace! Jewelry that makes you pay attention to your movements is the best Grin I think all the bracelets you make are gourgeous (and the comment that you wouldn't win competitions is ridiculous), but this one totally ROCKS! All that hard work was utterly worth it Grin

Madam, now that song is stuck in my head ... Wink

This is so funny.  Your work is so meticulous. I'm always so jealous because I don't have the patience for this sort of stuff.  Good job!

i think he has a point Undecided that while most of my work is colourful it isnt 'statement' jewellery. i think adding larger pieces to my repertoire would be a good idea but wow this was a lot of work to go to just to get the last word in an argument!  Grin

maxxev - I have a sneaking suspicion he might be using reverse psychology on you Grin Maybe he thinks that inspiration by criticism is the way to go Wink
